WritePad is now optimized for new iOS 4.2 and offers document printing, integration with Facebook, improved User Interface and quality of handwriting recognition.

Mountain View, CA, December 1, 2010 - PhatWare announces today the new version of the popular note taking and handwriting recognition software for iPads and iPhones - WritePad 4.4. The new version has been optimized for the latest version of iOS and features integration with Facebook, which allows users to compose and post Facebook updates in their own handwriting. In addition WritePad 4.4 allows printing documents via WiFi, and offers improved user interface and quality of handwriting recognition.

WritePad is an advanced notetaker for iPads and iPhones, which converts practically any handwriting into computer text.

  • Email, Tweet, or Synchronize WritePad documents.
